Supervision in Today's Environment

You are here


We believe that the supervisory level of management is the most critical level in the success of an organization. This seminar is designed to de-mystify the role of the modern supervisor and show why they must be a member of the management team.

This 2-day seminar will enable the participants to acquire organizational skills critical to the supervisory level of management to implement necessary changes in the work place effectively.

This course is highly participative and delivered in a seminar format through short participative lectures followed by discussions organized round case studies, questionnaires and small group activities.


Participants will gain the ability to be able to:

  • Identify their unique accountabilities and differentiate their role from others on the management team
  • Assure that the right work is being accomplished at the right level
  • Create an environment in which participation, empowerment and employee development are integrated into day to-day operations
  • Develop an "operational" job description through clarification of supervisory duties
  • Identify and implement critical payoff duties
  • Create and sustain a productive team environment
  • Obtain greater pay off from support functions and increase the utilization of current resources



Supervisors, first level managers and newly appointed members of management.
